The global scholarly community is moving towards open access and SMU has an Open Access Policy with effect from 24 October 2013. Uploading the full text PDFs of your publications into InK will make your publications easily accessible and freely available to everyone which will enhance the visibility of your research.
When your full text PDFs are available in InK, you will receive a monthly report via email and access to your personal Author Dashboard. The Author Dashboard enables you to view download counts, search terms used by others to find your work and institutions from which users have accessed your work.
